JOSLYN ART CLASSES
for preschoolers, youth, and adults are offered year-round. Class themes are inspired by artworks from the Museum’s permanent collection and special exhibitions and incorporate visits to the galleries and gardens into the art-making process. Classes are lead by accomplished artists and art educators from the community who are eager to share their artistic insights and technical skills to beginning and advanced artists alike. Subjects and themes change with each season; winter-spring, summer, and fall. Areas of focus include art fundamentals as well as unique art-making experiences related to special exhibitions.
Every year Joslyn's classrooms serve over 10,000
students! These students are exposed to unique studio experiences, establishing a lifelong appreciation of art and offering an opportunity to express themselves creatively and in new and inspiring ways.
These heavily utilized spaces are ready for some much-needed updates to provide students with the best studio environment to work in and explore their creative abilities. We are preparing to replace all the tables and chairs in the Masterson and Cooper Classrooms as well as restock supplies for the 2013/2014 school year. Our goal is to provide a well-stocked studio for all students and we need your help to make that happen!
